Pods. There are three categories of pods; Extra fine pods, fine pods, and bobby beans. Extra fine pods are tender, puffy, and seedless. They have no strings, and their diameter is less than 6mm and a length of 10cm. On the other hand, fine pods have small seeds, soft strings, and tender, puffy skin. The pods are longer than extra fine pods by about 3mm. Bobby beans are generally bigger and large. At FrutPlanet, we only source either fine or extra pods for our export customers.
Shape: French beans are either straight or curvy with pointed ends. The length of French beans ranges between 6 and 12 cm. The pod’s skin should be smooth, and the ends should be tapered and pointed. Deformity and curling of French beans are signs of irregular watering. At FrutPlanet, we handpick and package all the beans and ensure we get rid of deformed beans.
Colour: French beans are usually green, although a yellow variety exists. The yellow French beans are Haricot Jaune, a common vegetable in French cuisines. Green French beans can turn yellow due to a lack of water, and as a result, they lack nutrients. FrutPlanet has specialised professionals who check the beans before packaging.
Smell: The French beans’ smell isn’t very noticeable. However, sensitive people realise that it has a faint grassy vegetal smell. On the other hand, if they’re ill-odored, whether green or mouldy, dispose them. The French beans can be green, yet they have undergone bacterial growth internally, which leads to a bad smell. Our team individually examines each bean when packaging to ensure that our customers only get quality produce.
FrutPlanet is a snow peas exporter and supplier. We export products, including fruits, vegetables, spices, beverages, etc., globally. You can order these products by requesting a quote through the form.
Here are some of the most important features we consider in snow peas we export:
Colour: The snow peas should have a saturated pale green colour. However, some may have white scarring as the seeds grow on the pods. Snow peas are often victims of bacterial and fungus diseases that lead to colour changes from green to grey. This colour change is often in highly humid areas. Here at FrutPlanet, we select only green snow peas for export.
Size: The snow peas should be thin because the seeds and pods haven’t fully formed. The ideal thickness is about 2 cm or three-quarters inches. The snow peas’ length is about 7cm or 3 inches. Frutplanet exporters harvest the snow peas before the seeds fully mature. That way, we ensure our peas are the best for exportation.
Skin Texture: Before harvesting the snow peas, we sample a few of them for the snap factor. We curve the pea so that they snap. Otherwise, we don’t harvest them if they curve perfectly. Additionally, we double-check the snow pea’s skin texture and ensure that they’re smooth and with no matches, cuttings, or insect sting patches.
Age: All our snow peas are harvested within the right timelines. We harvest them within two months to ensure that they don’t over-mature. Our snow peas are available all year long, whether in spring or summer. We have a wide network of farmers who guarantee quality and quantity.
FrutPlanet is a leading exporter of fruits, vegetables, spices, beverages, and more. Amongst the products we export is sugar snap peas.
Size: Sugar snap peas sizes vary depending on where they grow. A mature pod grows to about 4 to 8 cm or about 1.5 to 3 inches in length. The height and width of the plant vary depending on the pod’s number. Our team at FrutPlanet has been harvesting sugar snap peas for years and can quickly tell from afar.
Colour: Sugar snap peas have a similar physical appearance to other peas but are smaller. A mature sugar snap pea has a pale green colour. However, they are a little darker than snow peas. Our experts at FrutPlanet can easily set apart mature sugar snap peas by identifying their colour.
Cultivars: At FrutPlanet, we export almost all snap peas cultivars. Some cultivars we export include Sugar Ann, Sugar Bon, Amish Snap, Cascadia, Sugar Daddy, Super Sugar Snap, and Sugar Snap. Each cultivar has its timeframe to maturity but mainly ranges between 50-70 days. You can Request a Quote and specify your preferred cultivar.
Seeds: A mature snap pea has about four to ten seeds, and at the time of harvesting fresh sugar snap peas, the seeds are often premature. We pick seeds that are round but not entirely swollen or firm. Sugar snap peas that are too mature have dull and hard seeds, and the skin becomes fibrous. We harvest sugar snap peas when the pods are young and edible to ensure you get value for money.
